Acrylic Paintings & Heat

LakeTallIt looks like being a hot summer. If you paint with acrylics, you should avoid stacking acrylic paintings on top of each other in your car for transport. The heat affects the acrylic, making it soft, and if anything is pressing on it, it can stick and damage the surface. Keep this in mind if you are storing acrylic paintings anywhere that it gets very hot – don’t put anything on top of them! (Photo taken at Brentwood on the Beach.)
